On the Needles - 8/30/13

It's a glorious day in Nashville today!  It's probably going to get a little hot later in the day, but this morning, I'm just drinking in the early morning sun and song of the birds :*D  I'm also looking forward to my friends coming over to play with our Talkin' Turkey quilts for a while today.  I can never thank the Lord and my husband enough for allowing me to be at home and enjoy my life without the hassle of a job!!!

If my Dreambird were finished, I'm sure she would be soaring in that clear blue sky this morning, checking out what's for breakfast :*D  However, it will be quite a while before she can soar.  I do have three feathers done, and it's so exciting seeing how the colors fill the feathers.  This last feather went into the deeper purples, thankfully not so deep though that it hides in the black background....

I can't wait to see what surprises the next feather holds!!!

I had hoped to be further along on this project, but I had to "unknit" this 3rd feather when I was halfway through it because I thought I had dropped a stitch.  By the time I realized that I hadn't, I was all the way back to the beginning of the feather.  So that is the first and third feathers that I have now totally restitched LOL!!!  But as I read about my fellow knitters' adventures on Judy's updates, I'm seeing that I'm not the only one having to knit backwards occasionally :*)  Knit on.....

Have a glorious weekend my friends!!!
I'm linking up with other "chicks with sticks" at Patchwork Times!

Hugs & Blessings!
